Wilma Racing Northeast as a Strong Category Three
      #62795 - Mon Oct 24 2005 05:16 AM

10 PM EDT Update
Wilma is located 320 miles south of Cape Hatteras,NC; and is racing NE at 38 MPH.
Maximum sustained winds are near 125 MPH, a Strong Category 3.

2:30PM Update
Wilma is moving away from Florida, and has torn through the southern half of the state, many in south Florida are without power. Damage reports are mixed right now, and I haven't heard much news from the Keys.

Wilma is restrengthening once again over water, but is finally out to sea.

It has turned chilly here in the wake of Wilma, a very odd thing for a hurricane.

Updates will continue to be sporadic today.

Original Update
Wilma is nearling landfall. With 125MPH it's solidly a Category 3 storm, approaching Marco Island in Southwest Florida. Moving very rapidly at 20MPH.

Updates may be sporadic today.

0530 on the treasure coast. off and on drizzle, wind still 20-25MPH but picking up. Not much here yet but Wilma is about 50 miles out so we're expecting more activity any minute.

I'll keep updating from the Red Cross EOC in Vero Beach as much as I can.

The appearance of the eye on radar has improved drastically in the last hour, as it appears to have become more circular and contracted in size somewhat. It's a good thing Wilma does not have much more time left to strengthen.

Did I read that correctly? 56F! They're saying here (SE FL) tonight 57! Well, I guess if you're gonna be without power..that's definitely more preferrable than our usual 80 and super muggy!

Ed's on local channel 4 in Broward Co. now.

I hope that she doesn't do the Katrina trick.

Flat marshlands don't slow a Cat 3 or 4 down very much.

NHC better break out the generators. This is going to get nasty real quick. Hang in there Jamie and Bob.

Present temp here is 47F.

Cat 4....just great

Winds picked up here dramatically and instantly. Getting pelted with a rainband.

Guess I won't be going to the mall after all...

Wilma is still a cat 3 hurricane. The initial message on this thread is incorrect in describing it as a 4. Winds are currently 125mph.

Our local cable station is still reporting the storm to be a CAT 3/ Are they ahead or behind this board? We have been having strong squall lines coming through since it woke me up at 4:00am

Local Viper [Re: danielw]
      #62815 - Mon Oct 24 2005 05:47 AM

Local Viper is showing a more easterly track currently. They also showed the front pushing down through Orlando and the Cape currently with Northerly winds. Local Mets. think this may be the cause of the more easterly track. I also still see the lowest pressure towards West Kendall area. It is much lower than all the other Miami area stations. I think the storm wants to head towards that.

Hurricane activity is increasing and the Red Sox are choking.

Yes it was a typo. It's what I get for rushing when I wake up now corrected and placed in the title as well. It's very likely I won't be able to update much today.

That's not good...Brian Norcross here was saying that while the storm has arrived for the keys...the "real" storm surge hasn't occured yet...what they've got now is from the south..once the storm gets a little further inland and the winds are coming at them from the north they were expecting surge in the neighborhood of 5-8 ft. I only hope that anyone that decided to stay understands what a foolish thing that was to do with no emergency help available or hospitals open and learns a lesson. (saying prayers that it's not the hard way)

NHC has three 350kva gens in parallel. I know. I put them in when we built the place.
Even the Coke machine is on backup power!

Had some pretty good downpours here so far but only a few gusts of maybe 20-25.
